finding a reliable insulation contractor to do the job

  • Knowledge. A great insulation contractor needs a thorough knowledge base–not just about the various types of insulation, but also on how your home works as a system. The goal of insulation is to create an impenetrable heat envelope, so it’s essential that your contractor examine the insulation in every area of your home to ensure that it does its job.
  • Certification. In addition to inquiring about a potential contractor’s insulation knowledge, you should also ask to see their certifications, as these documents prove that the candidate has completed a certain number of hours of training in a specific type of project. A reputable team such as ours at Pisgah Insulation & Fireplace will be happy to show you these documents, and any hesitation is a sign that something’s fishy with that company.
  • Compliance. Lastly, your insulation contractor should always abide by industry standards on how to deal with insulation materials, including properly disposing of old insulation, as well as taking the necessary precautions against asbestos and mold. When you enlist our team at Pisgah Insulation & Fireplaces to help with your home’s insulation, you can count on us to always follow comprehensive safety guidelines.
